Set plural label for spent time when less than one hour
At the moment the spent time label for less than one hour is in singular. This is wrong.
ex.: "0.5 hour" should be "0.5 hours"

I might be wrong here, but I think for any decimal form of a number, the unit should be written as a plural. Singular form with numbers applies--I think--exclusively to whole integers.
Even 1.0 would use "hours". At least, "one point zero hours" sounds more correct than "one point zero hour".

Decimals below 1 are often folled directly by plural nouns. [..] Fractions an decimals over 1 are normally followd by plural nouns.

It's "1 hour", but "1.0 hours". Or in german "1 Stunde", but "1.0 Stunden".
